Altered military canvas bag for Mixed Media Place.


Hello everyone!!

Today i have a mixed media altered item for Mixed Media Place to show, a military bag made of a heavy-strong canvas fiber... to hide some scrapbooking stuffs in there...My husband came home from work the other day and said ''Hey Eirini i have this military bag and air force pin banges,do you want them or shall i throw them in trashes??'' ''NO..of course not , sweetie...theses goodies are valuable to me...''i answered.You should watch his face..he he he...He must have thought...Crazy woman...
Here it is before...and after the transformation...



So,first i used some Prima  Heavy Gesso with an Alphabet Prima stencil on my background, Lindy'smists acrylics and powders then.Glew down some laces,2 old painting brushes, a key hunging from a screw nail i made myself, air forces pins,metallic ellements which i had to place either by sewing them or by making them pins, in order to stay firm,a butterfly painted with mists and acrylics etc.Gesso again and stamping.Then started the fun part...Coloring and glowing all my tiny details( glass beads in a mix of gesso, gel medium and glass glitter - micro beads all Prima).




 The difficulty here was that i had to sew them, so that they won't go away when i lift it.The canvas fiber  is a hard matterial to sew..But the result was good,so it worthed the effort.





















If you like it too, watch below to see all the matterials i used and be inspired..Thank you for your time...See you soon..Eirini
